Description

Elite Wimbledon players like Serena Williams or Roger Federer may get help from Hollywood the next time they hit the tennis court. New motion capture technology, similar to the kind used in Hollywood movies, could help tennis players improve technique and avoid injury.

Scientists at Coventry University developed a system that uses motion sensors to monitor tennis players’ movements and track stress on muscles, bones, and joints. The program, called Bob, creates a 3D avatar image to help doctors and coaches see what’s happening inside the body when a player swings at the ball.
